Mommy’s Magical Crackers

DSC_0007 copyNamed by my kids years ago, these are so magical, they start disappearing almost before they leave the oven. It’s a good thing they’re easy to make—easy enough for every day, good enough to include on a fancy cheese and cracker tray at a party.

1 c. all-purpose flour

1 c. wholemeal flour

¼ c. sesame seeds

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1/3 c. vegetable oil

2/3 c. warm water

Mix flours, sesame seeds, soda and salt. Stir in water and oil, stirring just until the dough comes together in a mass. Divide dough into halves. Roll out each half very thin (1-2 mm) on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cut into cracker shapes, and bake at 190°C (375°F) for about 15 minutes, until they are brown and crispy. Check regularly toward the end of baking and remove any crackers that have browned before they burn.

Eat quickly before they vanish!

* Replace the wholemeal flour with rye meal (or a coarse ground rye flour) for a lovely variation.
